New Zealand-based indie-rock artist Jack Berry (real name Damin McCabe) has just unveiled his infectious new single ‘Psycho’ – produced and mixed by Djeisan Suskov (LEISURE).
‘Psycho’ is an indie-pop paragon. As an unwavering beat unfolds against a funk-laden bass line, reverb-soaked guitars playfully navigate around the arrangement; providing the perfect bedding for Jack’s dreamy vocals to hover above effortlessly.
Jack talks about the creative process behind ‘Psycho’:
“Djeisan Suskov handled the whole thing. It’s the first time I’ve had somebody else doing production/mixing/mastering, as I usually try and do that all by myself. I intend to keep on doing that – this was just a unique opportunity to do something with somebody I admire!”
To coincide with the release, Jack will play a run of East Coast shows supporting New Zealand’s BENEE and Australian juggernauts Lime Cordiale.
Despite the project only being in its infancy, Jack Berry has already sold out multiple headline shows and supported the likes of BENEE, LEISURE, Kllo and Set Mo in his native country of New Zealand. He’s also performed at Rhythm and Vines, NESTFEST and House of Vans.
Born and bred in Dunedin, New Zealand, McCabe spends his time outside of the Jack Berry project bouncing between his studio space, friends’ bedrooms and everywhere in between to write songs and produce for others. He also puts together pop-up thrift stores and shows as part of his DIY record label GARBAGE Records; founded and run by the artist himself.
In the coming weeks Jack Berry will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Psycho’.
